Tutor description

The legend of Wyatt Earp lives on largely based on his exploits as a gunfighter and Marshall of the frontier West in the 1880s. The classic tales of the shootout at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone or his sawed-off shotgun duel with Curly Bill are possibly the most celebrated gunfights of frontier history and cannot fail to stir the reader's imagination.

Any hunter could boast of the money in his pockets at the end of a season, but few could say accurately how much was gain.The Ways of the Veteran HuntersThe buffalo hunter of 1871 set out for the range with five four-horse
